Shell falling on school designated by Israel and the UN as shelter in Palestinian enclave kills 16 people and injures scores of others while they sleep, medics say.
israel does not give a fuck. they will kill everyone incl journalists and not bat an eye bc they control this country
Israelis are murderers and American Zionists are accomplices to this barbaric butchery
It is REALLY important to remember that more innocents are under fire more often in Palestine than on luxury jetliners, any day of the week. And I say this as someone who is flying through Ukraine

I had a patient in the clinic who really did not want an abortion but who had no resources to cover the costs of prenatal care or childbirth. She was single and without insurance coverage but made just enough money to be ineligible for state assistance. She already had outstanding bills at the hospital and with the local ob-gyn practice. No doctor would see her without payment up front.
We were willing to do the abortion for a reduced rate or for free if necessary. But she really didn’t want an abortion. Once I understood her situation, I went to the phone and called the local ‘crisis pregnancy center.’
"Hello, this is Dr. Wicklund."
Dead silence. I might as well have said I was Satan.
"Hello?" I said again. "This is Dr. Wicklund."
"Hello," very tentatively, followed by another long silence.
"I need help with a patient," I said. She came to me for an abortion, but really doesn’t want one. What she really needs is someone to do her prenatal care and birth for free."
"What do you expect us to do?"
I let that hang for a minute."
This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund
Crisis Pregnancy Centers often disguise themselves as medical facilities, with advertisements offering “help” with an unplanned pregnancy. Their main goal is to keep the pregnant person from having an abortion at all costs. Usually, all they’ll give you is a free pregnancy test, some baby clothes, and maybe a box of diapers.
The patient referred to in the quote was given free prenatal care and did not have to pay the financial cost of childbirth by a local anti-choice doctor. She would often stop by Dr. Wicklund’s office to let her know how she was doing:
"He (the doctor) always moans and groans about being tricked into [doing this]," she says. "Then he goes off on these tirades against abortion."
"This Common Secret" is such a phenomenal book. And yeah, crisis pregnancy centers are generally evil, so there’s that.
And there you have it.
For the first time CBS 5 News gets a tour inside the Nogales warehouse holding close to a thousand children who have crossed the border illegally and without their parents. You can see the slideshow of what we witnessed here: http://fb.cbs5az.com/1phfGtS
What do you think the American government should do with these babies, children and teens?
===Inside the US concentration camps where thousands of children are being warehoused for the “crime” of crossing an artificial border separating Mexican land from land that the US stole from Mexico.
[Also, I include the original text above as written by CBS News to demonstrate the bigoted way in which they even approach this clear crime against humanity].
